Dipping from the Past

I went to dinner tonight with some of my oldest friends. I met Mindy in 2nd grade, Rhiannon in 7th, and Natalie in 9th. We have kept in touch over the years, sometimes from a distance. But somehow we've all managed to reconnect over the past couple of years to become dear to each other again.

I love that there are people who have known me for so long. They have seen me change and evolve over the years, and they are still hanging out with me ... which is pretty cool.

When we get together, we catch up on current events in our lives, we inevitably take a stroll down memory lane, and then we just talk about who we are now. I'm grateful for good friends. I'm glad to know there are people who grow with us and who somehow understand us without having to work at it.

So jealous. You can't talk about these gatherings when we live so far away!

It was a fun night. And I'm glad we're all still such good friends after all these years.
